Grove of Whispers returns with an unsettling dark dronescape, recorded as a live radio session.

About the album:
Performed on January 31, 2013.

Done live using midi controller, Linux and personal field recordings. Music fashioned using the buddhalizer -- a virtual extension of my imagination.

Grove of Whispers is John Tocher. John does the Sadayatana podcast and plays live several nights a week on Stillstream. He also releases dark and experimental music at Buddhist on Fire.

Cover adapted from an image by David A. Martinez.

Thanks to all the folks at and for their inspiration and support.

"What I find really scary, though, is the media. Especially television, it's so limited as to what it shows. And when that gets out, it really makes people biased, and creates an illusion that the tiny detail they focus on is the whole picture. When I was out in front of Kodemmacho Station, certainly that one block was in an abnormal state, but all around us the world carried on the same as ever. Cars were going by. Thinking back over it now, it was eerie. The contrast was just so weird. But on television they only showed the abnormal part, quite different from the actual impression I had. It just made me realize all the more how frightening television is."
--Masanori Okuyama, as quoted by Haruki Murakami, Underground: The Tokyo Gas Attack and the Japanese Psyche (1997-1998)
